Chicken Soup

My chicken soup is more like a stew. It is a meal in itself.
Chicken soup tastes best the second day.

  • 8 cups water or more
  • 2 carrots, sliced
  • 1 celery stick, chopped
  • ½ cup rice
  • salt and pepper as needed
  • 1 bayleaf
  • 1 clove stuck into the bayleaf
  • chicken (breast, legs, whole chicken cut into pieces)
  • place everything in to a big soup pot and bring to a boil
  • simmer for 1 hour



  • I usually peel the skin off the chicken before cooking
  • remove chicken from soup
  • let is cool off a bit
  • tear into bite size pieces
  • let soup cool
  • when cool skim off fat
  • When ready for the meal, bring soup to a boil
  • add matzo mixture and follow instructions for matzo balls
